Vaccination Schedule:

Steps to get your vaccination

Step 1: Check your eligibility below or use our tool

Step 2: Preregister for a mass vaccination location or find a location and schedule your appointment

There are different ways to find a vaccine appointment:

  • Preregister at VaccineSignUp.mass.gov to be notified when it's your turn to schedule an appointment at one of 7 mass vaccination locations: Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, Reggie Lewis Center, DoubleTree Hotel in Danvers, Eastfield Mall in Springfield, Natick Mall and former Circuit City in Dartmouth.
  • Use VaxFinder.mass.gov to search for appointments at pharmacies, health care providers, and other community locations

Massachusetts’ preregistration system makes it easier to request and schedule an appointment at one of the 7 mass vaccination locations. People can preregister for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at mass vaccination locations only. More locations will be added to the system in April.

Once you sign up for preregistration, you’ll receive weekly status updates. You can opt out at any time if you find an appointment elsewhere. Once an appointment is available, you’ll be contacted with the opportunity to book the appointment and have 24 hours to accept it.

Massachusetts receives a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses from the federal government each week. Due to high demand and very limited supply, it may take several weeks to schedule an appointment or to be notified that an appointment is available at mass vaccination locations. 

look for more information of Mass.gov

Additional details about the current state of reopening can be found on Boston.gov/reopening

We are more than half way through March! 

The time has changed...and it's not fun to lose an hour, but at least the days are getting longer, and we've had a few nice days, between the snow and the wind.

We've made it through a whole year of Covid.  It's been a long year, and the future, with our new normal is still coming to light.  Some things may never go back to the way they were, but let's look forward to some of the things we have missed.  What have you missed the most?  Hopefully there are also things that have happened this year that you will continue to do.  Did you pick up a new hobby? Facetimed or Zoomed with people you hadn't talked to in a while? Started new traditions?

We can't wait to get back to seeing people, even if it's just the eyes!  We'll imagine the smiles!   

The Governor has announced the dates of eligibility for vaccinations for everyone.  The light at the end of this very long tunnel continues to get brighter, but we're not at the end yet.  Please continue to be safe!

Keep wearing your masks!

IRISH SODA BREAD W/ HOMEMADE GUINNESS BUTTER
recipe from withhomemade.com
try their free cooking classes!

Ingredients for the Bread:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for currants
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch dice
  • 1¾ cups cold buttermilk, shaken
  • 1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 cup dried currants

Procedure for the Bread:

Preheat the oven to 375⁰F. Line a sheet pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the butter and mix on low speed until the butter is mixed into the flour.

With a fork, lightly beat the buttermilk, egg, and orange zest together in a measuring cup. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture.

Combine the currants with 1 tablespoon of flour and mix into the dough. It will be very wet.

Dump the dough onto a well-floured board and knead it a few times into a round loaf. Place the loaf on the prepared sheet pan and lightly cut an X into the top of the bread with a serrated knife.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. When you tap the loaf, it will have a hollow sound.

Cool on a baking rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

 

Ingredients for the Butter:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 ounces Guinness Irish stout or similar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • celtic sea salt or any good salt

 
Procedure for the Butter:

Pour cream into the bowl of food processor, blender, or a mason jar with a tight fitting lid.

Blend the cream until the whey begins to separate from the butter. You will know this happens when the jar gets heavy and the butter starts to turn yellow, after about 6-7 minutes or about 2 minutes in a food processor or blender. Pour the liquid into a medium bowl and set aside during kneading.

Remove the solid butter and place in another medium bowl and begin to need knead as you would bread, pressing with your fingertips and folding over and pressing out the rest of the buttermilk. Pour the liquid as it accumulates into the container.

After kneading and pouring two times, flatten the butter and pour the honey and Guinness into the butter and continue to knead until incorporated.

Add salt and knead and pour two more times.

Form into your desired shape, wrap in parchment and store until ready to eat!

The liquid can be stored in the fridge for about 2 weeks and used as buttermilk.
